At about 9 am, we approached the island of Stadsholmen and the medieval town of Gamla Stan (Old Town) stood there waiting to be explored. Gamla Stan emerged in the 13th century and is home to Sweden's Royal Palace. This Royal Palace is one of the largest inhabited palaces in the world with over 600 rooms. In addition to the reception rooms, there are several interesting museums in the Palace, including the Royal Armory, with royal costumes and armor.
Sweden’s national cathedral - Stockholm Cathedral
I love these iconic buildings at Gamla Stan's Stortorget (The Big Square).
It was one beautiful day in Stockholm - not a cloud in the sky.
Viking runes at one of the streets in Gamla Stan.
Mårten Trotzigs gränd or Alley of Mårten Trotzig is less than a meter wide with 36 steps down. It is the narrowest alley in the city.
The Royal Palace.
Luckily, we were in time to watch the ceremonial changing of the guards at the Royal Palace.
